The bishop soon rectified the situation by baptizing and confirming everyone. He also married every couple that walked by and desired such. Later, the tribal chief told the Bishop the tribe had never had so much fun. The bishop asked the chief which part they enjoyed the most. "The marriage service," the chief said, smiling.

_____________________________________________________ In Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, many farmers are reluctant to buy into anything that smacks of technology and the modern-day world. But when a local university created an agricultural web page to answer questions the farmers might have, they were pleasantly surprised to hear that the farming community had nicknamed the new site "The farmers on the Dell." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tasha Schleicher, 41, New Home, Minnasota One of the ‘worst DUI offenders in the country’ arrested again Police in the suburbs of Chicago arrested a woman they said is one of “the worst DUI offenders in the country.” Riverside police arrested Tasha Schleicher, 41, of New Home, Minn., on Monday around 9:30 p.m. Police said they got a call about a woman passed out behind the wheel of her car in a gas station at 2246 South Harlem Avenue. When officers arrived, they saw an open bottle of Crown Royal in the front passenger seat. Officers in Riverside said she tried to fill her car with kerosene instead of gasoline. She was charged with drunk driving, not having insurance and driving without a license, which was revoked on drunk driving charges. Riverside police said she was “combative” with officers the entire time. She lied about her name, date of birthdate, Social Security number, and also lied about being pregnant, police said. Schleicher told police that she was in the area after dropping off her son, who wanted “to party” in Indiana for spring break, according to the Riverside-Brookfield Landmark. She has six DUIs in six states, according to police. In one incident, she was with her children in the car when she lost control and slammed into the median multiple times before her tire blew and the bare rim forced her to stop five miles later. When an officer approached the car, she was allegedly nursing the infant. During another DUI arrest, she told the officer who pulled her over that she had her children with her, even though she was alone in the car, according to the paper. Schleicher’s 11 children have been taken away from her in Minnesota, all related to drunk and impaired driving situations, according to police. Tech Support Pits From: Doug Re: AOL Flag Dear Webby have never heard anybody calling those chevron forwarding marks "AOL Flag", but I sure will from now on! Once upon a time, long, long ago, you mentioned a program that strips those AOL flags from mails. Do you still have the link to that program? Thanks Doug Dear Doug Just go to my toolbox at http://webby.com/tools and look for a n icon that looks like a traffic sign with an AOL flag on it. The Program is called "STRIP". and it's free. Have FUN DearWebby John and Bob were two of the bitterest golf rivals at the club. Neither man trusted the others arithmetic. One day they were playing a heated match and watching each other like hawks. After holing out on the fourth green and marking his six on the scorecard, John asked Bob, "What'd you have?" Bob went through the motions of mentally counting up. "Six!" he said and then hastily corrected himself. "No--a five." Calmly John marked the scorecard, saying out loud "Eight!" "Eight?" Bob said, "I couldn't have had eight." John said, "Nope, you claimed six, then changed it to five. But actually you had seven." "Then why did you mark down eight?" asked Bob. John told him, "One stroke penalty, for improving your LIE."

Working as a computer instructor for an adult-education program at a community college, I am keenly aware of the gap in computer knowledge between my younger and older students. My observations were confirmed the day a new student walked into our library area and glanced at the encyclopedia volumes stacked on a bookshelf. "What are all these books?" he asked. Somewhat surprised, I replied that they were encyclopedias. "Really?" he said. "Someone printed out the whole CD?"

Bimba pushes her BMW into a gas station. She tells the mechanic it died. After he works on it for a few minutes, it is idling smoothly. She says, "What's the story?" He replies, "Just crap in the carburetor." She asks, "How often do I have to do that?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com An irritated father complained to his golf buddy. "When I was a kid, my parents sent me to my room without supper if I misbehaved. But my son has his own color TV, telephone, computer, every computer game and CD player in his room!" "So how do you handle it?" his friend asked. "If he doesn't behave, I send him to MY room!" Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Two church members were going door to door, and knocked on the door of a woman who was not happy to see them. She told them in no uncertain terms that she did not want to hear their message and slammed the door in their faces. To her surprise, however, the door did not close and, in fact, bounced back open. She tried again, really put her back into it, and slammed the door again with the same result - the door bounced back open. Convinced these rude young people were sticking their foot in the door, she reared back to give it a slam that would teach them a lesson, when one of them yelled, "Ma'am, STOP! You knocked out your cat with the first slam. If you are going to keep doing that, you are going to get some very expensive vet bills!"
